This card was inspired by a post on the Paper Wishes Message Board - here. It's hard to tell in the picture since I didn't get an angle showing the side, but this card is designed as a clutch purse. I think it's really pretty, but it didn't look as much like a clutch as I wanted - wish I had embossed the part of the card base that serves as the lower edge of the card front. For the final product I decided to take the greeting off the front and move it to the inside (opposite corner from the tulip). This made it look much more like a clutch from the outside. Here's the inside:
The card base was cut from a piece of metallic silver poster board that was white on the other side. I used card stock and die cuts from Floral Shimmer Hunkydory card kit to decorate this card. Here's a closeup of the area I left for writing a message.
